Gardeners' Notes:

Negative Gascoigne On Jun 24, 2011, Gascoigne from Shawnee Mission, KS (Zone 5a) wrote:

Gets the dreaded repeated clematis wilt in my garden...and no surprise, it's mother, Nelly Moser gets it a much lesser extent...I have started a vitacella, 'Walenburg', next to 'Fireworks' so that when the nigh time come to rip out the dreaded tacky thing, Walenburg will rise to succession. It's obvious Fireworks wasn't my favorite....I'm a vitacella/viorna lover now and bought the Fireworks when I was naive because it looked exciting...and like everything else in the big box stores.

When I first bought this plant, we were renting a house; so I had to plant it in a windowbox. Since then, it has performed beautifully for me in this windowbox; even living through summer drought and several ice storms. Finally, this year I will get to plant it in the ground!

I have grouped this with my candidia white both of which are blooming right now. I can't wait to see them dripping off of the small dead dogwood I have them climbing next spring. 10/13/04

They did not climb as well as I wanted them to but I am going to trin it more up the other clematis vines this year, the flowers are huge and beautiful. Our weather has had some very strong winds and they have held up miraculously.4/23/05
